to citizens like the filter bubbles a wonderful issue increasingly facebook doesn't ask us to say something important because they want us to like it so they can give us more stuff that we like and they will show that first. that does not -- we may have friends are black and hispanic but we tend to orient toward those that have the same world view that we do. we do much more of that. and so, i think one of the most dangerous trends in the united states over the long term is that we are deepening the segmentation of the orientations that we have in our political and social preferences and clearly our politics in washington reflect that. i don't know how. it's an interesting observation. but absolutely the diversification of the ethnic composition in the united states as a mitigating factor. >> welcome this is really been an interesting conversation and i feel very lucky to have had a chance to talk with you and all the other knowledgeable people here. i don't have a copy of the real cover of the book right here, but every nation for itself i believe there are books in the back. by
